Shopping and Care Package
I spent most of the weekend shopping for our trip - clothes for Maya, clothes for me, fun things for Maya, clothes for Les, more clothes for Maya... I think I'm finally ready! I guess if there's something that I have forgotten, I'll just have to buy it there. Can't wait - more shopping!!! I finally had some time today to send the care package to Maya through Ann at Redthreadchina.com. It was so easy! I included a letter to the orphanage director, which Ann will translate and also included three pictures of us. Maya can become familiar with Ma-Ma, and Ba-Ba before we meet in person. My Mom and Dad added a book and a musical bear to the pyjama package and dress that we are sending. I am so excited for Maya to receive her package! We are hoping to hear something this week from Thomas in China, through our agency, in regards to an update about Maya and hopefully travel approval and dates. There is one week of school left until Spring Break - then I can work on getting the house ready. I will really enjoy the week off - these past two weeks have been quite full!
Here is our alternate blog that we used while we were in China. You can also find it at the bottom of my list of blogs on this page. Blogger didn't work in China - it's actually blocked, as is youtube. There are many photos as well as daily entries that you may enjoy taking a look at and reading.
There are also different types of blogs that I have created and am playing around with listed at the bottom of this page. Please check them out, too!
